Balsamic Vinaigrette

  • In a jar add all of the ingredients, close with lid, and shake vigorously until combined.

Steak Salad

  • For the steak: preheat skillet over medium heat with olive oil. Salt steak and once skillet is hot, add steak. Cook on one side for about 4-6 mins, and flip. Add garlic clove and thyme and rosemary to pan if using. Spoon some oil onto the steak to infuse the garlic and herb. Cook for additional 4-6 minutes until desired doneness, (use meat thermometer to determine this. I cook until about 145° for medium. Let steak rest on a plate or cutting board.
  • Once steak has rested for about 10 minutes, slice and set aside.
  • To assemble salad: add mixed greens to bowl and top with some roasted potatoes, steak, tomatoes, onions, and gorgonzola. Drizzle with vinaigrette.
